Since 1962, the Heart of America Japan-America Society (HAJAS) has made it our mission, “To further the understanding between the peoples of Japan and the Greater Kansas City area by promoting social, cultural and educational exchanges.”

In addition to the Greater Kansas City Japan Festival, we present monthly programs about “all things Japanese,” and visit schools, libraries and companies educating and promoting various aspects of Japanese culture – both traditional and contemporary. We provide higher education scholarships for students of Asian studies and have exchanged high school students with Kansas City’s Sister City, Kurashiki, for over 40 years.

If you’d like to help us in our efforts, consider making a small donation using the payment form below.
